More product information
The Celestron SkyQ Link is a Sky & Telescope Hot Product for 2013. It uses Celeston’s SkyQ app (available separately for $4.99 from the iTunes app store at to give you WiFi access to the Universe.

The SkyQ app itself is an inexpensive and easy-to-use astronomy application for your iPhone or iPad that locates and identifies virtually any celestial object visible in the night sky. It has over 4 hours of audio describing many of the most famous objects in the sky – planets, galaxies, nebulas, and the brightest stars. Its Tonight’s Sky function gives you suggestions for the best objects to view when you head outside. A Moon phase calendar, detailed lunar map, and visible planet graph helps you keep track of the events of our Solar System, while a separate display shows you the alignment of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s Moons as seen through a telescope. And there's even more.

By itself, the SkyQ app is a fun way to enjoy the night sky with your bare eyes or binoculars. But . . . plug this lightweight and compact SkyQ Link WiFi Adapter into your Celestron go-to telescope and your SkyQ app will wirelessly control your scope at the touch of a finger on your iPhone/iPad screen. More than merely enabling completely wireless operation of your telescope (including alignment), the SkyQ Link WiFi Adapter allows you to automatically slew your scope to an object with a simple tap on your SkyQ app iPhone/iPad planetarium interface. And a SkyTour feature even generates a list of the best stars, galaxies, and nebulas to see based on your time and location.

The SkyQ Link is completely self-contained and does not require any batteries. It was tested to work on the following Celestron mounts and scopes: CGE Pro; CGEM; CGEM DX; CPC; NexStar SLT; NexStar SE 4/5/6/8; LCM; SkyProdigy (although with no automatic alignment); and the Advanced Series CG5 go-to (including the Advanced VX mount). It also works with Celestron's NexRemote software, although you'll need to update your existing NexRemote software to the latest version and download the SkyQLink PC Installer to use it (both available at no charge from Celestron's website).

If you have a Celestron go-to telescope and an iPhone or iPad, the SkyQ Link WiFi Adapter and the SkyQ app will get the most out of both of them by letting them work together wirelessly and seamlessly.
